*** UPDATE: VICTORY! SOAS HAVE NOW BACKED DOWN AND COMMITTED TO NO COMPULSORY REDUNDANCIES IN RESPONSE TO THE THREAT OF STRIKE ACTION ***
Support staff and academic staff at SOAS are being balloted for strike action by their unions, UNISON and UCU, as management plan a shocking 127 redundancies – 1 in 4 of the workforce.
The cuts are part of a generalised attack on further and higher education – but they face growing resistance from the rank and file movement, UCU Branch Solidarity Network.
